1 stars I will freely admit I was a Metallica fan boy back in the 80's, I was worried when the Black Album came out, By the time Load and reload came out, I was done with them, and on to totally different styles of music.I have not even heard St. Anger in its entirety, but when Death Magnetic Rolled out, I was excited, and really really liked that album, even went to my first concert of theirs in nearly 20 years!, I was all in, re-living my youth and feeling good about the future of the band, When I heard about this I thought, hey this might be interesting, Never cared much for Lou Reed, But the craziness of it sounded intriguing to me, In the last 20 years I have enjoyed some very challengingly bizarre music, "I can actually relax to Peter Brotzmann's Machine Gun" In the end, I was glad I only Borrowed a copy of Lu Lu, The guy I borrowed it from, didn't want it back either by the way.

This music is the most self indulgent bull shit I have heard in a long time, absolutely no redeeming qualities at all, brutal, self aggrandizing drivel, I now hate Lou Reed's guts, if you remove him, and put say, David Bowie or Mick Jagger in his place, and Actually sing instead recite lyrics most of the time, You might have something worth hearing. I tried like hell to enjoy this as art, But this was like a Crucifix in a jar of urine, Nothing remotely entertaining at all. I almost feel sheepish agreeing with all the Metal Heads out there, I listen more to Miles Davis than Metallica these days, and he was wildly criticized for thinking out side the box by fans and critics alike, This box needs to be sent to the center of the earth never to return, Dreadful!!!! this music is not for completionists, only sadists.
